So it's a fantasy?

How do you figure only one?

Anyway, one was all I needed. Toto implies there aren't any.

By all means, please name these "dozens and dozens". And to be a sport, I'll settle for the minimal interpretation--that's only 24.

You should ask Toto what he's talking about. He makes it sound like Hollywood never makes pro-grunt movies--I named three right off the bat. All by liberals, too.

I'd have no problem with that. I bet they'd be fine with it, too.

Jesus, this thing looks like it was made for eight year olds.

>After years of seeing films treating American soldiers as mercenaries, thugs or much, much worse

You mean like in Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, and (ahem) HBO's Generation Kill?

[This is actually the first part of the above. The software is buggy and didn’t accept it the first time.]

Last night 3-4 of you asked me to explain what I meant by this:

She has only one interest at heart and it isn't "America".

I'll answer it this way. If I'm right about Sarah Palin--that the McCain campaign gave her a taste for fame and fortune she couldn't resist--isn't this exactly what that would look like? She fell in love with the money and the attention, and she saw the only way to keep it all coming was to quit her job so she could travel, "write", go on TV, twitter, etc., all the live-long day. I agree that the complaints against her in Alaska were part of her reason for quitting, but not in the way you do. They were going to bog her down, and rather than face the drag of continuing to do her elected job she quit so she could go schmooze on Fox News, rake in the dough at autograph signings, etc.
